MY PRESSURE COOKER BLOG IS A WOW

I’m gratified to report that the interest in pressure cooking is growing and growing.

It’s been over 20 years since COOKING UNDER PRESSURE was published and finally we’ve reached a tipping point where convenience and speed are winning out over unfounded fears of “pc” blow-ups. Getting the blog stats below from WordPress today is a nice, celebratory way to start the new year. Please comment and let me know what you’ve been making in your pressure cooker.

Next year the Taj Mahal!

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 47,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 48 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 73 posts. There were 44 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 32mb. That’s about 4 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was November 8th with 372 views. The most popular post that day was PRESSURED-COOKED LIMA BEAN, BARLEY, VEG SOUP.

  1. Congratulations on a successful 2010!

    I’ve been pressure cooking comfort meals – we’ve had a LOT of snow so far, so I’ve been craving stews, chilis, and lots of beans.

    A recent favorite was this turkey, chorizo and pinto bean chili:

    • Oh, that sounds very good. TX for being in touch. All the best for a delicious new year.

  2. I just bought a pressure cooker so will be exploring your blog now!

    • Go girl! It’s gonna change your life.

  3. Were the 47,000 views “page views” or “visitors”?

    I’m so glad to see so many people are interested in your blog! What do you think was the up-tick in November… your article in Organic Gardening magazine?

    Hip is not Taj Mahal, either, nor have I hit the one year anniversary. I’m hoping for as many visitors as the PEZ Museum by the end of the year. Not as exotic, but probably more attainable!

    Ciao,

    • Yes, the up-tick was surely due to my “pc” article in Organic Gardening, but I regularly get new subscribers. I’m thrilled that there’s been a surge of interest in pressure cooking. I’m not sure whether page views or visitors…TX for all you do to promote this wonderful way of cooking!

  4. I recommend the Kuhn-Rikon, WMF, and Fissler cookers, 6-qt. or larger. You can check out the individual web sites for details. Happy cooking!

  5. I just bought a K-R to replace my old Innova jiggle top, when the locking button broke off. I only used the Innova to cook beans, but I have used my new cooker to cook broth (veggie and chicken), beans, steel cut oats, risotto, and steam veggies. It’s been great.

    I’m looking forward to continued experimentation. One thing I’m excited about trying is pulled pork.

    I love the second generation cooker, I don’t have to worry about burning the beans on the bottom of the pot anymore and don’t have to listen to rattle and hiss.

  6. Lorna, show us some crunchy numbers for 2011. Did you surpass the Taj Mahal? Most popular posts, etc?

    Many trend corcasts are mentioning Slow and Pressure cookers for 2012!

    Ciao,

    L

    • So glad to hear about these trends. I’ll have to hunt up my stats; it was definitely a good year.

  7. This is very amazing blog and information provided by the article of this blog is really nice and useful and i would like to visit the blog again.
